SEBASTIAN COUNTY (KFSM) -- A man facing conspiracy charges for his alleged involvement in an ATV crash that left another man with brain damage was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated, according to the Sebastian County Sheriff's Office.

Joey Gray was taken into the Sebastian County Sheriff's Office at about 8:24 a.m. on Saturday (Sept. 16) and is facing charges of driving while intoxicated and refusal to submit a chemical test.

According to the Greenwood Police report Gray hit speeds of 96 mph as he passed a patrol vehicle on U.S. Highway 71.

In the body cam video, you can see Officer Eric Pippin pulling Gray over.

According to the police report, the officer said Gray had blood shot eyes and smelled of alcohol.

The officer asked Gray where he was coming from and Gray said, "North Dakota."

After waiting several minutes for Gray to find his insurance card, the officer asked him to step out of the vehicle for a field sobriety test.

The officer completes a series of tests with Gray stumbling through them as seen in the body cam video.

The arrest report said Gray failed the sobriety tests and did not know where he was.

The officer tells a Sebastian County deputy that the field sobriety test was bad.

"You should've seen it," Pippin said. "The worst field sobriety test I've seen."

Gray was later taken to the Greenwood Police Department where he refused to do a breath test. He was then taken to the Sebastian County Sheriff's Office.

According to the police report, this is the second DWI for Gray. He was last arrested on June 7, 2016.
